Xpress X19 Swamped on Erie

November 23, 2009 Leave a comment

A very bad day that could have been much worse

Those who know me know that I have two fishing fetishes: 1) I love stories of oldie but goodie lures being used in modern times, and 2) I love aluminum boats.  I thought I’d share this story written by Steve Coulter and his eerie experience on Erie in an aluminum boat. Being swamped is not cool.  But the fact that the boat’s flotation worked is cool.  Click here to read about Eerie Erie — Bo

Robby Rose Cheating Scandal Update

November 20, 2009 2 comments

Local TV Coverage of Robby Rose Cheating Scandal

Much of the feedback (i.e. backlash) that we have received after our pilot episode has inquired about the current status of the Robby Rose cheating scandal. As of now we have not heard of any arrest or charges being pressed against Mr. Rose. It has been reported that the case is being investigated–but no specifics into the investigation have been released. There is a rumor that biologists are DNA testing the fish in question to determine if it came from Lake Ray Hubbard. Many have speculated that Mr. Rose’s MO was to catch fish from a different lake and somehow weigh them in at tournament waters that have a smaller average fish size. I am disappointed that there are no reports of Rose’s property being searched for further evidence. We will keep you updated. — Bo
